I love everything Disney and collect pins and vinylmations. My husband and I got married in 2010 at the DL hotel and it was the best day of my life! A new FL local who visits WDW weekly!

As a local it also stinks because I have to think if we may want to eat at a popular TS restaurant 6 months from now (I hardly know what's for dinner tomorrow let alone 6 months from now, lol). I booked Thanksgiving and Christmas dining at exactly 6 months and a lot of the popular restaurants and times were already gone. 
This is one reason we have cut back tremendously on our trips to WDW. Though we love it we often can't book far in advance & are left with not our top options most of the time , sorry I'm not going to sit by the phone or computer first thing in the morning & multiple times before my trip & definitely not going to pay anymore for ressies then I already have paid for my trip . This has taken the spontaneity out of vacation which for me is a huge part of going on vacations since everyday life is a schedule & routine . We haven't been able to get a dinner ressie at Ohana in 5 yrs , it's crazy . I do think the system needs a big change , will it happen though , probably not. I do however think Disney needs to do something about these "scalping" companies , it's hard enough to get these ressies . - tracsant  1286.9 #1 8:56AM
Totally agree that the spontaneity has gone.  - rink2  139.3 #58 2:50PM
This is why this year we are trying the quick service dining plan. I've woken up early 190 days out and have managed to get all the reservations we've wanted. But, the part that bothers me is trying to switch them for a different time or date later on if something comes up (park hours change.) Even if we try to change them 3 or 4 months out! - rlpologal89  10.9 #235 9:20AM
This is very disturbing.  I think if no one will pay these people maybe they will stop scalping us - Pooh147856  326.7 #23 11:54AM

David's Vacation Rentals is a popular site and they handle everything for you, I think the cost is about $15 per point. You'll want to have a resort and back up resorts and dates picked out at least seven months in advance and be ready to book by then. There are other sites where you can work directly with the person who owns the points and usually the cost is $12 or $13 per point but requires mor  More...

There are other sites where you can work directly with the person who owns the points and usually the cost is $12 or $13 per point but requires more time and research. Disboards has a DVC rental board and I have used Mouseowners.com when we needed more points. Google DVC points charts to see how many points you'll need depending on room type and resort. It can be a really great savings renting DVC points! - Andrea84  701.7 #9 7:16PM

Thanks we have thought about that for this trip also. Is that the pizza shop, right  - mmddgp  712.3 #8 5:46PM
It's a sandwich shop near the second floor by the movie theater. The pizza is my favorite but all outdoor seating as well. - Andrea84  701.7 #9 5:49PM
That food looks awesome! It was super hot today! I hope your day got better. I had a problem with 2 of ours when we were shopping too. It's frustrating knowing they have your money and you can't use it. They finally fixed it. I always worry about that when I do gift cards but never had it happen til now.  - disneygrandma1  180.1 #47 6:52PM
I'm mad I left my receipts for them at home so I couldn't even double check😁. Hope you had a great day. They day I had planned didn't work out. I hate that they had no pool time today the whole reason we stayed an extra day. Ugg!!! - mmddgp  712.3 #8 7:24PM

yesh but living in California and seeing those sights already we'd rather see around the world... Things we don't normally get to see daily where some of those we see enough of. That's my opinion living in Cali :) - brodysmommy  413.1 #507 1:08PM

I would read the fine print on the back well before you buy, usually small fees like if you call to check the balance or if the card is lost they take a large fee out to replace. Certain cards and depending on store when used don't print the remaining balance on the receipt so you'll have to track it at times. They very last time you use the card if your purchase is over the amount of the balance   More...
Check with your bank. When I was in high school my mom got my a bank card that had x amount on it for spending on my band trips.  - TinkTinkTink  224.6 #36 12:36PM
Thanks! - DizneyGirl  777.9 #7 12:37PM
Why not get Disney Dollars for them? - jacdanfan  9422.6 #3 12:38PM
Or just a Disney gift card, most are reloadable and ones at Disney store can have any amount. Maybe something you could pick up at the resort when you get there too and not get the visa fee - TinkTinkTink  224.6 #36 1:12PM
While Disney gift cards are awesome and I'm taking several for me . . . I didn't want to do that for them.  Last year Claire didn't spend all her money at Disney (WEIRD, I KNOW) and wanted to save the rest, which wouldn't work for a Disney card.  Now, I'll be spending ALL of my Disney gift card balances, don't worry about that!! :) - DizneyGirl  777.9 #7 2:19PM

Certain cards and depending on store when used don't print the remaining balance on the receipt so you'll have to track it at times. They very last time you use the card if your purchase is over the amount of the balance you have to tell the store to run it for the exact balance or it will decline. I think the ones you can reload are a bit easier to use but cost more upfront. Just from working in banking and hearing problems with them, I personally wouldn't use them but some people do like them. What about some cash and some Disney gift cards or using your credit card and have the girls pay you back? - Andrea84  701.7 #9 3:52PM

Yes, please thank posts that contain quality Disney related content!!! They are great at doing this on the DL side and I have noticed the quantity of quality Disney related posts has greatly increased. Please, reward quality posters (or commenters) for a job well done, encouraging more quality Disney content!!! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1155.6 #3 2:16PM
This is a great feature to utilize as are many others . Even if I don't comment on a great quality content post I will absolutely Thank the post. Live photos are what we all crave the most but we just don't have the locals to have that luxury , so any quality disney content is what MW is for. We have many wonderful features to be utilized and how's & why's or do's & don'ts if you will all found in the FAQs. - tracsant  1286.9 #1 3:35PM
I, too, will many times thank a post but maybe not comment on it. I want the poster to know I appreciate the post.   - DizneyGirl  777.9 #7 3:52PM
There are several MWers on the DL side that post tips and hints to improve the MW experience. These posts are reposted on a regular basis for new and old users alike. One of the best tips is to read the FAQ. It is loaded with app info that explains how to get the most from MouseWait. I have read it many times as it is updated. I learned new things about posting wait times that taught us how to do it better. Because the DL app is consistently upgraded I only use it to visit the Lounge on WDW and DL side. Have had no issues. - jacdanfan  9422.6 #3 6:38AM
